Going Postal


So... work has been a bit stressful lately, to say the least, but my title refers to the Postage Challenge in the Moxie Fab World...and NOT to any impending death of a co-worker - lol!  I also checked out the fabulous gallery of this week's Featured Stamper on SCS and it's none other than the ultra talented TracyMac!  I chose THIS CARD to CASE for the colors and the floral/leafy elements...just love her card!  I had a lot of fun putting my card together...first came the postage Nestabilities, then the oldie but goodie SU set "Letters From Friends".  I revived another relic from my archives by using this mini envelope stencil.  While I was on a roll using some really old stamping supplies, I chose to cut out the 2 stamps with a decorative scissors! Gasp!  Who uses those things anymore?!  To add a pop of color, I added the green leafy flourish and some Melon Mambo roses.  Hopefully, this will brighten the day of some dear friend!

STAMPS: Letters From Friends (SU), Blue Skies (Verve)-notebook page, Hope Blooms (Verve)-sentiment.
PAPER: White (PTI), Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Basic Gray,  Twitterpated DP by SU
INK: Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Leafy flourish die by Cheery Lynn Designs, Rolled roses Die-Namics by MFT, Postage Nestabilities, Postage edge scissors, Envelope template by SU, Large banner die by Lil Inker Designs.

Hi Wanda! Thanks so much for playing along with the Featured Stamper challenge! :-) I'm so excited to have this honor and am really enjoying seeing the cases of my cards. Gosh, you went back to an OLDIE. LOL Some of those--hmmm--MOST of those old ones are kind of embarassing. :-) I love your use of the flowers and leaves and the added postage elements add a lot of fun to the card.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and once again for playing along. Hugs!
